Series Circuit Voltage
Added by Craig Napier on Dec 15, 2008
The concept of potential difference is introduced. Students record the voltage at various points around some simple circuits to see that the sum of potential differences around a series circuit is always equal to the supply voltage.
This item teaches:
- how the potential difference of each component connected in series is calculated
- the definition of voltage
